YourFlightRights is established to operate with passengers’ interests as its top priority. The foundation’s main task is to inform you in a simple and accessible language about your rights as a passenger and the steps you should take in case you are in a situation of a delayed or cancelled flight, denial of boarding or luggage problems.
With us, you will get to know what to do if you have to travel with a baby, what would you need for a business trip, what type of insurance could be needed and more. Our goal is to make you feel safe and confident and to overcome the hassle experienced due to flight cancellation, delayed flights and denied boarding.
Being aware of your rights, you easily could avoid discomfort or disturbances and to minimize problematic situations as well.
The European Commission has introduced a number of rights and obligations to carriers which are outlined in Regulation (EC) 261/2004 intending to guarantee one’s right to care and provide them with the necessary assistance in case of trouble. What’s more, the EU Regulation entitles passenger to receive compensation between EUR 250 and EUR 600 in case of delayed, cancelled or overbooked flight.
However, airlines fail to point this fact – a mere 4% of the passengers are aware of their rights. Foundation YourFlightRights’s aim is to improve the awareness of the air passengers and the value they receive in each travel. Because, remember, the more you know, the smarter you grow. The value you receive in each journey is important fact because any disruption leads to significant financial and non-financial damages to passengers such as missed meetings, loss of valuable leisure time, missed connecting flights, stress and discomfort from prolonged waiting at airports or aboard an aircraft.
YourFlightRights is there for you – turn your bad experience in a weapon and don’t give up your rights.
